The deal he was given this summer was fair IMO. If Duchene went to RFA this far into the season, I'm sure he would get a major offer sheet of something like 6.0M. In my opinion, that doesn't prove that he was worth that, yes I guess if someone is willing to give him that, he kinda is, but it only takes one GM out of 30 to pay too much..
I know you are just trying to protect your buddy, but I'm just very frustrated at him for screwing this up so much, I'm sure this will come to hurt to Avs big time. Either they have to trade a great player, or being forced to overpay for Varly, Landy, Dutchy too just because ROR was so greedy he was willing to wait half a season to get what he wanted.
I was just very positive about our re-build and the pieces we had and I'm angry at him for screwing up so much.
